A California federal judge has delivered a legal earthquake in the music industry by declaring Flo & Eddie of The Turtles the victors in a lawsuit against SiriusXM over the public performance of pre-1972 sound recordings. The plaintiffs are seeking $100 million in damages, but the money is hardly the only consequence of a ruling on Monday that could eventually disrupt the operations of the satellite radio giant as well as other services like Pandora.

Tee Wilson's curator insight, December 3, 2015 9:17 PM

The music industry as a whole is a broken mess. Copyright and publishing has always been a big issue in the industry. You have to learn all you can to keep big companies from not paying what is actually owed to you. Laws need to be changed by people who actually know how the music industry works.

Lloyd Mitchell's curator insight, February 18, 11:26 PM

This article basically breaks down how equity in catalogs can be a sustainable business, and how your initial investment can appreciate in value over time. This is my favorite article of the ones that I have shared so far in terms of music publishing. It speaks of getting paid in perpetuity, as well as famous artists who have taken control of their own catalogs.

Lloyd Mitchell's curator insight, February 18, 10:42 PM

Basically, this article speaks of how Pandora is a thief when it comes to what they give artists for royalties. The rate that they give artists is laughable right now, which is about 60 dollars for every 1 million streams. That is unacceptable, and the horror story of what happened to John Legend serves as a cautionary tale of why an artist should never go through Pandora as a distributor.

Lloyd Mitchell's curator insight, February 18, 11:10 PM

This article explores why SoundExchange is yet another vulture scavenger sucking the money out of its artists that trust them to be fair. It just talks about how there are two separate copyrights that have to be paid, and SoundExchange only pays a small percentage of one of those royalties.

I like this article. It speaks on how you can sell a share of your royalty income to those who are willing to purchase it. This is a concept that can allow you to make money off of the same composed recording in a different way.
